Lampropeltis calligaster rhombomaculata
Tan/orange with reddish orange coloration. About one foot long. I believe it to be a juvenile corn snake, however I have never seen one in the field so am not 100 percent on it. Upon looking at the picture again.... C It could be a young northern copperhead?
Found on the side of the street. This location was close to a poplar/oak dominated forest
